Watch Israel. Physical, political, secular, Israel came back
to life in 1948 in Palestine. But God’s present love is the Christian Church, each member of which is personally,
vitally, indwelled by The Lord Jesus Christ. But Israel is destined to be reactivated, with full spiritual vigor with
the calling of the 144,000 per the book of Revelation chapter 7. A Lot of Jewish Billy Grahams! With the Seal
of God in their foreheads!
It sure looks like Israel could get very hard pressed
having been viciously surprise attacked by Hamas a few days ago, just after Yom Kippur, October 2023 gentile dating.
The current US administration will likely pretend to help but will do little, their true sentiments being the
same as those of Hamas.
I think Scripture indicates God must come to the rescue
and he will do so. But God will not have two programs going at the same time, the Church, the “Bride of
Christ” in watching, and preparing for her bridegroom, and Israel, the “friends of the bridegroom,” and
heirs of the coming millennial kingdom hard pressed. God will not have both purposes ongoing at the same time.
He must Rapture the Church!
So, we members
of Christ’s body best be diligent in service to our Lord, and in careful watching for his coming, Time could be shorter
than we think!
1 Corinthians 15:50- Now
this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit
51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
52 In a moment, in
the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we
shall be changed.
53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put
54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall
be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
55 O death, where is thy
sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.
57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast,
unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.
4:13- But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them
which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.
14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them
also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
16 For the Lord himself
shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ
shall rise first:
17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be
caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
18 Wherefore comfort one another
with these words.
Revelation 7:1- And after these things I saw four angels standing on the
four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea,
nor on any tree.
2 And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice
to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea,
3 Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till
we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.
4 And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.
5 Of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed
twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand.
6 Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Nepthalim were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Manasses were sealed
7 Of the tribe of Simeon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe
of Levi were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Issachar were sealed twelve thousand.
8 Of the tribe of Zabulon were sealed twelve
thousand. Of the tribe of Joseph were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe
of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand.
9 After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude,
which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the
Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;
10 And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which
sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.
11 And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the
elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God,
12 Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom,
and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for
ever and ever. Amen.
13 And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came
14 And I said
unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their
robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
15 Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and
he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them.
16 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor
17 For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of
waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.
